Started by Garrett "Mek" Dockery on August 20, 1999 out of his need to have screenshots for as many games as possible, the site was originally called Gamepics. On December 12, 1999 the first game scans were added to the site and they became so popular that by January 14, 2000 the sub-site Gamescans was online, followed quickly by merging off these two sites into the Video Game Museum, launching officially on January 26, 2000.

Your Sinclair Magazine Issues 01-94 (January 1986 - September 1993. Your Sinclair was the successor to Your Spectrum, and focused on entertainment more than its predecessor. There's still a fair amount of technical content though, especially in the early issues. Towards the end of the magazine's life, it went straight for the "yoof" market, and as the Spectrum declined so did the page count.

With the re-branding of computing power and machines as something welcome in the home and not just the workshop, a number of factors moved forth to sell these machines and their software to a growing and large group of customers. Besides the introduction of more elegant cases and an increased presence by larger and larger firms, a strong argument can be made that one of the forces was the proliferation of computer-related magazines and newsletters that gave a central, printed home for writing...

Connected via strange adapters and relying on the television's speaker to put out beeps and boops, these games were resplendent with simple graphics and simpler rules. The home console market is credited with slowly shifting attention from the arcade craze of the...
